Since 1971, Starbucks Coffee Company has been committed to ethically sourcing and roasting high-quality Arabica coffee. Today, with stores around the globe, the company is a premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world. Starbucks wanted something particularly eye-catching and unique for its new 5,600 sf LEED-certified indoor / outdoor store in Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. Based on its Green Store model, it opened in 2014.

This first-of-its-kind Starbucks experience engages guests through its 150-seat restaurant with sustainable materials, a 10-foot, nine-panel LED screen, an interactive touch screen which encourages guests to sketch their own artwork, the outdoor patio built around an old Ficus tree, and the outdoor Tournesol Siteworks‘ green wall designed with 1,000 native plants in the shape of a coffee cup. At the heart of their VGM living wall product is a recycled plastic planting module attached to stainless steel hanging rods. Measuring 15 feet high x 22 feet long, 78 VGM modules were shipped to the job site already grown-in, planted in a 4 inch soil profile with Isotoma, reverse spider plant, Senecio serpens, and dwarf mondo grass with pre-assembled irrigation emitters in the modules. Over time, the mondo grass was removed due to heat issues and ongoing maintenance includes exchanging bottom plants when necessary.
